The first FarmFest was organized in 2016 by neighbors pulling together to create something good and new in a tough time. The Francisco School, which had been the heart of the region for almost a century, was closed in 2015. After the closure local folks dedicated themselves to finding ways to keep that heart beating in a repurposed facility. This tradition of self-reliance and resilience is as much a characteristic of the communities here as farming.
